Our two bedroom, one-and-a-half bath traditional style cabin is tucked among the trees in the popular area of Chalet Village, providing privacy with the luxury of being minutes from downtown Gatlinburg and the entrance to the Smoky Mountains National Park. A small creek trickles along the driveway, and you’ll be tucked away among the trees, along with the wild turkey, deer and bears who also make their home on our mountain.

The space

Upstairs, a master suite loft offers a king-size bed, large seating area and flat-screen TV that’s perfect for late-night movies. Or, fill the indoor Jacuzzi and relax after a day of hiking. A second floor balcony provides privacy along with sounds of the forest and creek to go with your morning coffee.
Downstairs, the living room is the heart of the house, with leather furniture, another flat-screen TV, large picture windows, and a fully-stocked kitchen. Let our gas fireplace keep you warm as you watch movies or play a game of billiards on our regulation-size pool table. Behind French doors, a second bedroom features a full size bed with windows that peer into the surrounding forest.
A large front porch stretches the length of our cabin, providing an opportunity to watch fireflies during summer nights or listen to the creek. A small side lawn sets the stage for grilling or a game of corn hole.
What makes us unique? Stay at our home and you’ll have access to three community pools, a clubhouse, and lighted tennis courts as well as a discount card for nearby Gatlinburg attractions and vendors.
Note: In November 2016, a wildfire ravaged Gatlinburg. Homes, buildings and lives were lost and words cannot express our heartbreak. We lost one home, and are grateful this home was spared. As Gatlinburg rebuilds, we welcome the visitors who cherish this place as much as we do.
This cabin is rented by its owners. When you email or call about the cabin, you speak directly with us - not a management company. It's our second home and we take pride in sharing it with you.
While management companies handle hundreds of cabins, we have one. We know more about our cabin than any management company ever could. There is a vast difference in renting from individual owners, who are invested in their home and your experience, versus a management company.

This is a great cabin in a beautiful secluded Mountainside area of Gatlinburg. Perfect for a small family or two couples.

This place is amazing. It's location is in the middle of the woods hitch is perfect for privacy but so close to town that you can still shop and eat. This was a very clean cabin and the loft upstairs is huge! This is a perfect getaway and I can't wait to go back!

Beautiful and clean home. Jacuzzi was nice and relaxing, plenty of towels provided. We didn't really use the pool table but our kids loved the pac-man game that was upstairs. There was plenty of space inside for the four of us (my husband, our 4 and 8 year old boys and myself). There wasn't much outdoor space for them to run around, but that was the case for all the homes in the area. The air conditioner worked fantastic and the beds were comfortable. It was also nice that there was a washer and dryer to use. The dishwasher didn't seem to be working, but that wasn't a huge deal for me. The tv was a pain to use, I like to watch the morning news but there is no way to watch regular tv (has to be netflix, amazon or another app). We ended up watching news on youtube. The roads to get there and the drive way are kind of tricky to drive on. Definitely drive slow and take your time. There is a porch downstairs and upstairs which is nice to sit and relax on (my husband saw a bear while on the front porch one morning). There is absolutely no view of the mountains from the cabin because of all of the surrounding trees. Overall it was a very nice stay, no issues, easy check in, clean, comfortable, peaceful and relaxing.

Perfect place for our family of four (boys 12 & 14) to relax and enjoy the Smoky Mts. Beautiful scenery and we saw a bear while enjoying our morning coffee on the deck. Kids enjoyed the game console and pool table at cabin. We played tennis and used pool at clubhouse. Explored Gatlinburg and hiked/biked the National Park. Highly recommend this cabin.

My wife and I stayed here on our honeymoon and I have to say that it was a perfect fit. It was a private, beautiful location in Chalet Village near Gatlinburg, TN. It was very clean and tidy, and easy to keep clean. They provide an Amazon Firestick with a lot of apps to choose from which kept us entertained. The kitchen was fully stocked with supplies and cookware so after we bought groceries it was a breeze to cook meals. The Jacuzzi upstairs was very relaxing as well. Danielle is very punctual and clear in all of her communication. Great to work her! Highly recommend.

We first visited the Smoky Mountains in 2004 on a spontaneous trip from our hometown in Orlando, FL and we just loved it. We hope you will find the same charm and beauty that we have discovered near our home in Gatlinburg. When you rent from us, you will always talk to David a…
